Flower Beauty Shine on Lip Gloss in Pretty in Petunia
Last month in the January edition of Allure magazine, Drew Barrymore was featured. She talked about the usual things: her past, movies she's been in, her love life...but she also talked about something I was super excited to see! She was about to launch her new makeup line, Flower Beauty to be sold exclusively at Walmart. I have to admit that after reading the magazine, I totally forgot about Flower. However, yesterday I was in Walmart and came across a display of a brand of makeup I had never seen in stores before. It took me a minute to figure it out, but after pondering for a moment I realized that it was Drew Barrymore's collection!
The collection at my Walmart consisted of a display of a few different lip products including glosses and three varieties of lipstick finishes, a couple of mascara formulations, and nail polishes.
The price range of these products are within the usual drugstore prices, around $5-7 for one item. I decided to use a gift card from Christmas to pick up three items to have a little variety to share with you. I am going to make this a little mini series of the three items I grabbed, since one of them is a polish and I want to do a nail-of-the-day with it!
The first product I picked up from Drew's new line is this Shine On Lip Gloss in Pretty in Petunia. First, I have to say that the packaging of these products is gorgeous. They have nice clean, crisp lines with a very classic look. The white top with the silver border makes this product look very upscale to me.
Pretty in Petunia just looked like a really nice basic color to have. It's a great rose pink with a very slight coral undertone to it. I thought this would be a nice spring color. It adds a fresh look to my face and really brightens up my mood.
The gloss has a doe-foot applicator, which I love, and is easy to apply. It has nice pigmentation and is not too sheer, but also not super opaque. It is a nice gloss that can be worn with our without lipstick and gives great color to the lips. It's not a super sticky gloss and has great staying power.
The thing I love most about this gloss and the other lip product I picked up from the line is the scent. Both products are rose-scented! This goes along great with the "Flower" theme of the line and makes for a really nice, elegant feel to the products.
Have you tried anything from this line yet? Is there anything from it you are looking forward to trying? Stay tuned for the next two items I purchased from Flower Beauty at Walmart!
